The trio counts down its five favorite songs from its impressive two-decades-plus catalog
At Billboard, we like to think we know a little bit (and hopefully a lot more) about how to create a songs chart.
But, artists themselves have a unique insight into which songs of theirs deserve the highest praise. With that in mind, Chart Beat's series of artists making their own charts continues. We recently asked Barenaked Ladies and Go-Go's diva Belinda Carlisle to rank their favorite songs that they've recorded.
Check out the video above, as Goo Goo Dolls - lead singer Johnny Rzeznik, bassist Robby Takac and drummer Mike Malinin - count down their five favorite songs from their impressive catalog. The trio stopped by Billboard's New York studios last week to discuss, among other topics, its new album, "Magnetic." The set debuts at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 this week, marking the group's fourth top 10, following "Something for the Rest of Us" (No. 7, 2010), "Let Love In" (No. 9, 2006) and "Gutterflower" (No. 4, 2002). (The band's 1995 breakthrough "A Boy Named Goo," featuring the hit "Name," reached No. 27 on the Billboard 200, while follow-up "Dizzy Up the Girl," which includes the smashes "Iris" and "Slide," rose to No. 15.)
